Depends on your school......if a non-target where the bank doesn't recruit from you will usually be given very little time to decide (few weeks). If you go to a target you usually get more time (few months)

that.
basically if you want to shop around you reach out the day you get your offer and try to line up interviews within the week that you have ..

it's longer for targets because the bigger recruit target schools want to protect their kids (basically, its in ur incentive to have more time, and it's in company's incentive to give you less time) and force companies to "adhere to guidelines" to give their kids a minimum amount of time.

From what I found this is true for the SA offer, but after you work there all FT offers were given with the same deadlines. All the nontargets in my SA class had the same deadlines as the target kids. Couldve just been the bank I was at though. I definitely agree that during recruiting targets would get more time than nontargets. Not sure what it's like at other banks though

I agree that it depends on your school, but I'd also add that it depends on the firm. In my case, the target students were given one more week than the non-target students.
